My 15-year old son was recently taken out of school by the police and questioned for 2 hours concerning a friend of his. We were not notified by the police nor the school that this had taken place. He was questioned, without anyone but an officer present, and was asked to sign a statement, which he did. We have since asked for a copy of the statement but have been denied. We have been told he is a suspect, but of what we do not know. What rights do we have as parents in a case such as this?




Make an appointment to talk with a defense lawyer who has handled or knows the law regarding cases involving interrogation of minors at school. The law on search and siezure is different when it is applied to schools and school officials. Gets very murky. :(

This is not legal advice and you are not my client. Double check everything with your own attorney and your state's laws.
